Ingredients

  • 1 lb pencil-thin asparagus
  • 1 cup chickpeas (I use canned, just rinse them first)
  • 1/3 cup minced red onion
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 3 oz block feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sherry vinegar or whatever vinegar you like, as long as it's a good one
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Rinse the asparagus very well, then dry them well with a paper towel (you don’t want excess water diluting the dressing). Snap off the tough, woody ends and slice the asparagus spears into thin little asparagus coins.
  • Throw the asparagus coins into a bowl, and add the chickpeas, minced red onion, parsley, crumbled feta, lemon juice, olive oil, and vinegar. Add a big pinch of salt and pepper. Toss it around and taste. Make any necessary adjustments to suit your personal tastes, then leave it in the fridge for at least a half hour to let the flavors meld a bit. Enjoy!
